Violin with bow and accordion for pre war souvenir dolls

These last few days I have been sorting out and tidying up and among the many doll items I have were some small doll accessories that belong with the small souvenir dolls.

On Saturday, September 12, 2015 on Ebay, there will be a listing for two of these miniature instruments.  If you are interested check it out. I can see the photo here.

I hope you fall is going well.  I have heard a lot about the United Federation of Doll Clubs convention in Kansas City in July this year from one of my dear collector friends. Next year it will be held in my home town, Washington DC and maybe I will be persuaded to participate. Keep your eyes pealed. I can report that the book Ronnaug Petterssen – The Artist and Her Dolls continue to sell well. You can access the appropriate Amazon page by clicking on the book image. It is gratifying to see all the places in the world where there are people interested in my mother’s dolls. Lately there is a collector in Pretoria, South Africa who has checked us out. I wish you welcome to my world of Ronnaug Petterssen Dolls. meleney_artist&herDolls LIGHT_300dpi widget
